December StencilClub Preview

Hello Stencil Lovers!
Janet here from Happy Reminders!
I wanted to show you what I have been doing with the
exclusive December StencilClub stencils
designed by Mary Beth Shaw.

I started out here with a previously done background...
stencils and washi tape.
The purply gray colors looked like the snow laden clouds
during a recent November snow storm.

I used the larger stencil and the diamond section from the smallest stencil.

This was a fun one.
 I used the Transfer Artist Paper from a previous hop...
I had copied 2 of the same drawings on the same TAP paper
and transfered the extra image on to regular gesso covered paper.

I played with layering the medium sized stencil for the background...
And then the diamonds again for some details.
My message to myself is still...Find Your Voice....and Do Art Every Day!

 I also used the Circle Rays 6 and the Hands Stencil in this spread.

I think the 9x12 stencil in this set makes for a fabulous background.
I love using numbers and letters this stencil is awesome!

I started with mod podge and yellow ink, mixed them up 
and spread them across the side see how it differs.
I love the experiments and the "what if" aspect of art.
Hmmmm...what if I made one side really heavy and one side really thin?

 I started with mod podge because it is so ...slippery..
It makes for a different surface for other mediums to grab on to.
I played with drips and inks... putting on...taking off...
I used the 4x4  club stencil from August that little crosshatch!

A little too I wiped some off...

Added a meaningful word...

A great beginning...

I want to add a quote or scripture...not sure what yet...
But it still needed something on the background... 

 I have been wanting to try this ....
I laid the stencil down and stamped over one section of it....
Because it is a Clear-Mount stamp it is flexible and can be pressed onto the stencil.
I have tried wood mount stamps this same way
and it doesn't leave enough of an impression.

Just a nice little touch!

Yes. I am grateful.

Thanks so much for visiting with me today.
I hope you enjoy your StencilClub exclusive stencils.
